The 992 generation Porsche 911 GT3 has arrived in all of its 502 horsepower glory. Accompanied by a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six, the latest GT3 is the fastest, most track-focused 911 to date. Along with its many advanced technologies, including the PDK dual-clutch gearbox, it’s also available with a good old-fashioned six-speed manual. This nod to enthusiasts is expected to go over quite well as Porsche already predicts a very high take rate.
Speaking to Autocar, Porsche GT division chief Andreas Preuninger thinks at least 40 percent of GT3 buyers will request the manual. Porsche’s head of motorsport, Frank-Steffen Walliser, however, believes that figure will be even higher.
